Hastings City Band kicks off summer concerts

Hastings City Band will kick off the Hastings Live concert season at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 5, at the Thornapple Plaza in downtown Hastings. The program is “Beatles and Jazz.”

Hastings City Band was founded in 1857 and is one of the city’s oldest and most treasured traditions. Musicians in the band range in age from high school to seasoned senior musicians. Together, they perform five pops concerts, each featuring a crowd-pleasing theme.

The band’s annual “Tribute to America” concert the week of July 4 has become one of Hastings Live’s biggest events.

Hastings Live is funded in part by the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts. Local sponsors include the Baum Family Foundation, Barry County Lumber, Flexfab and Highpoint Community Bank.
